Comments: I found Andrew to be punctual, conscientious and very able. The task involved installing an electrical outlet in our garage which had finished walls. He was able to run wiring from an outlet in the guest bedroom on the other side of the wall without damage to the bedroom wall and by cutting a 6x12 opening in the garage wall to route the wiring. In craftsman-like fashion he and his coworker repaired that opening rendering it unnoticeable. I highly recommend Idea Electric.

Comments: Juan, the electrician assigned to the job, was terrific. His approach to the job was logical seeking out all potential options before beginning to cut into dry walls and ceilings. His attention to detail was refreshing and I will recommend him at every opportunity

Comments: Andy installed a ceiling fan in one room and a light fixture in another including new boxes. He had to run new wires from the switch to the boxes and his brother did the finish work at the end. The work was done in a prompt and expert manner. We are extremely pleased with the quality, and price, of the work done. They were very courteous and professional and we will definitely use Ideal Electric again in the future.
